Arriving in a government launch, she boarded a sampan and was rowed across the picturesque harbor, dotted with moored sampans and fishing junks. After a visit to the village (not covered) she was rowed abroad a fishing sampan to meet a Chinese family who have received assistance from the Save the Children Fund. The Princess is President of this fund. In a 10 minute conversation with the fishing family, she learned how these hardy people live and work aboard their small craft.
